In selecting treatment modalities, we look to provide efficacious, safe devices that provide multiple benefits. In keeping with this commitment, Dr. Shukla is quite selective about what products and devices are used here at drs skincare, choosing only those which he believes to be premier quality. For that reason, he relies on next-generation TruSculpt iD technology for body sculpting at his clinic in Hamilton, ON.
CoolSculpting vs TruSculpt iD body shaping
Patients often inquire about CoolSculpting, which is a heavily advertised alternative treatment. CoolSculpting may have a catchier and more familiar name, but that does not guarantee better treatment. In fact, TruSculpt has many distinct benefits.
How do these body sculpting treatments stack up in a side-by-side comparison?
- CoolSculpting destroys fat cells by freezing them. The procedure involves suctioning tissue between two temperature-controlling panels.
- truSculpt uses to destroy fat cells by heating them. This is accomplished with radiofrequency energy, applied via a warming applicator that glides gently over the skin.
In comparison to many other technologies on the market including CoolSculpting, TruSculpt iD has the following advantages:
- TruSculpt iD can be used in many areas on the body, with less restrictions on the size of the treatment area
- The CoolSculpting process only affects fat cells that are between the panels. Therefore, areas too small for the device are not treatable. Furthermore, it may not be appropriate for especially large treatment areas.
- TruSculpt iD is a very precise and predictable treatment, with an average of 24 percent fat removal. Radiofrequency energy has skin tightening properties, so truSculpt may reduce tissue laxity.
- CoolSculpting advertises an average fat reduction of 20 to 25 percent in the treatment area. It has no effect on tissue laxity.
- TruSculpt iD has minimal downtime and patients can resume daily activities typically right after treatment
- TruSculpt iD has a relatively quick treatment time with most sessions last about 1 hour
- TruSculpt iD has few treatment sessions typically requiring 1-2 sessions to see ideal results
